The coastal area has a surprising amount of good and great kitchens. When we visit Florence there are lots of nice restaurants to add to our routine. Chens is good basic Chinese food, with good serving sizes, and reasonable pricing.
The wait staff is friendly, professional, and attentive. We recently had the pleasure to be served by Susan, whom we had wait on us for the first time. Overall, we enjoy going in to Chens. It is fresh, wholesome, good value, and comforting. We went mid week in off season, and the locals had still filled the dining room. Water glasses continually filled, appetizers served promptly, tea pot replenished. Taste is good. Plenty to go around, and Susan filled our to-go boxes for us...which you may laugh at...but at the coast...few servers offer to fill them for you. {Hey other servers in the industry : ITS A BIG DEAL!!! } That is an indication of how nice a restaurant this is...silly, but its true.
We've been back several times, and when we're in the mood for Chinese in Florence...this is a really good choice. 4 stars to this family and staff.

Chen's is a really good family restaurant and the outside is very understated which I like. We went there 3 times during our 5 weeks stay and one take-away. Very good food and lovely people waiting on you. They are very unobtrusive yet excellent service which is how it should be. Very large portions and enough to take home for another meal.

We have eaten at Chens Family Dish Restaurant many times. We have also ordered "take out" at least once a week when we are at work. The food is always fresh and very well prepared. The menu is very extensive....dozens of excellent choices. Our favorite is the szechuan beef with pork fried rice and potstickers.

The dining room experience is excellent. The seating is abundant and you can choose between a booth or seating at open tables. The restaurant is always impeccably clean and the service staff are always welcoming and friendly. Prices are very reasonable.

We love Chinese food...but most places are good for take out but not so great for dining in. Chen's has not only great Chinese food but you can eat in a very nice dining room with great service! Be prepared to take some boxes home. Not only is the food delicious, but you will have enough for the next few days. I love their Mongolian Beef and General TSO's Chicken. A great dining experience!

this is a standard american Chinese restaurant and that should say it all. Have been here several times. Sometimes the food and service are good and sometimes it is very bad. So that hit and miss is why I will not go back. Some may like it. It is clean and relatively new so that is on the plus side. try it and see what you think.
